One the sweetest things that Crabbe ever
wrote, is the following song of a heart broken
maiden, crazed by the perfidity of herlover,
and sighing gently to be at rest. The melody
of the numbers is faultless, and beautifully
harmonizes with the graceful paths of the
Let, me not have this gloomy, view,
About my room, about my bed ;
But morning roses, wet with ,dew,
To cool my burning brows instead;
A' flowers that once in Eden grew,
Let.them their fragrant spirits shed,
And every day their, sweets. renews
Till I,a fading flower, am dead.
0, let the herbs I loved to rear,
Give to my sense their perfunmed breath!
Let them be placed about my bier,
And grace the gloomy house of death,
I'll have my grave beneath a hill,
Where only Lucy's self shall kibow,
WVhere runs the pure pellucid rill
Upon its gravelly bed below ;
There violets on 'the borders blow,,
And insects their soft light display,
Till,as the morning sunbeams glow, -
4he coIa'p fspiobric ires decay.
That is the grave to Lucy shown ;
The. soil a pure and silver sand,
The green cold moss above it grown,
Unplucked of all, but maiden hand,
In virgin earth, till then unturned,
There let my maiden form be laid.;
Nor let my changed clay be spurned,
Nor for new g'mests that bed be made.
There will the lark, the lamb, in sport,
In air, on earth,securely play;
And Lucy to my grave resort,
As innocent, but not so gay.
I will not have the churchyard ground,
With bones all black and ugly grown,
To press my shivering body round,
Or on my wasted limbs be thrown.
'With ribs and skulls I will not sleep
In clammy beds of cold blue clay,
Through which the ringed earth worm creeps,
And on the shrouded bosom prey.
I will not have the bell proclaim
When those sad marriage rites begin,
And boys, without regard or shame,
Press the vile mouldering masses in.
Say not, it is beneath my care;
I canno-'these cold truths allow ;
Those thoughts may not afflict me there,
But 0! they vex arid tease me now !
Raise not a turf, nor set a stone,
That man a maiden's grave may trace,
But thou, my Lucy, come alone,
And let affection find the' place !

Low in the dell the wild flower glows,
Its fragrant perfumes rise to heaven ;
The blossom withers where it grows,
And not one sigh is given!
Lone in the bush.the wild bird sino-g, .
Oni desert airs the-soft notes float;
To heaven the thrillhg cadence springs,
None heed his dyisg.note !
DBeep in the ocean's coral iaves,
The gem with hidden luste lows;
Though o'er it roll the' restless waves,
'Tis buried where it grows !
The lonely flower, the desert bird ,'
The buried gem, fair emblems are
Of passion's power, unseen, unheard-
Save in the soul-and buried there.'
of proper municipal regulations in the
towns, and the, early, anxious occupations
of the settlers,; in order to procure the
means of subsistence, the comforts of life
were wholly neglected. Aniinal and veg-
etabl6e decompositions were suffered to lay
int the streets; rain water to stagnate near
tdWn, anmd throughout the country, from
the want of means of draining it. This ful-
ly accounts for what was called the sickly
season of 1831 in Tallahassee, so much la-
mented at the time. Yet; on looking to the
records of that period, (the very worst, be
it remembered, in .the annals,) I find the
number of deaths, from 1st June to the 1st
[From the New York Star.]
Before quitting the subject of the soil,
allow me to enumerate a few of the trees
which adorn its surface at<,! sIrrotul ,'its
lakes and shores, with a profution w, i h
astonishes every beholder. T),9of tlese
stand proudly pre-eminent; IthI magnolia
grandeflora and the liveoak. Nothing can
exceed tile magnificence ani beauty of
these evergreens as they are ,und in this
territory. The first, the pridb of laurels
with its expansive flower, onq of the whit-
est and the largest which bloWs, contrast-
ing With !the dark bri~gt,' g6in oft; sister
leaves. Tlie-etl no6\vfi-ive oak, so use-
ful in the construction of ships, rearing its
majestic knarled head as well from the
richest soil of the interior s from the shel-
ly sands of the sea shore, and snuffling, al-
ready the ocean air, which the separate
limbs are doomed to traverse in other
Shapes. There are of these from 20 to 30
feet in circumference at the base, and sin-
gle limbs from 80 to 100 feet. t
Besides these are the beautiful water
oak, and the white oak and red oak amongst
.the largest in the United States. Amongst
those most abundant, are also found the
hickory, the pencil cedar, the cypress, the
juniper, the lotcusL (acasia,) the beach, the
mulberry, (albihs,) the cotton tree, the lime,
the dogwood, the wild cherry, the com'-
mon laurel, the Atassafras, so well known in
medicine, the chinquapin, the red bay so
distinguished by its blossoins, the palmetto
of the south, and several varieties of the
pine, which do noi, however, here, as else-
where, .denote barrenness of the. soul, but
on the contrary are very frequently the
sign of great fertility.
Of the climate I am bold to say to you,,
notwithstanding reports which may have
reached you to the contrary, that the terri-
tory is in a high degree salubrious, with
some exceptions from local cause, to which
I shall hereafter allude. Although its sit-
uation approaches the tropical latitudes, I
find the range of sinnlier heat is from 88
to 92 degrees of Falirenhieit, which is inu i
less thaii the occasional heats at the sarAe
period throughout thb whole of the more
northern cities of the Atlantic coast. (On
one occasion I find it rn corded as a romiar-
-ka'bl,-ocurr.nee sotme y-,ie agog, that the
thermometer stood at 970-the warmest,
month is June, and a few days before and
following. The air generally is pure and
elastic, never sultry, and the nights are al-
Ways comfortable, and a refreshing sea
breeze fans the atmosphere. The rainy
season commences with great regularity in
June, lasting from one 101ont1 to two-pe-
riodical showers fall also in September and
'February, from rain to sunishline, tihe trans-
ition is generally rapid as iii the tropics.-
The thunder is sharp, when it is heard, the
lightning vivid, but we have no tornadoes
as yet, ard no earthquakes-the water from
springs and wells is pure and refreshing,
excepting in veins of earth near to the rot-
ton limestone, which are avoided.
The season of winter is here amongst
the most delightful of any upon the face of
the earth-the absolute cold being experi-
enced for a few days oily, and that occa-
siorially. I find it recorded that on the
15th February, 1830, there was a fall of
snow 'of two inches, an event which never
occurred before and is not likely again to
occur. In the ever memorable month of
February, 1:;35, also, the thermometer fell
to nearly zero, as it did throughout the U.
States, killing here nearly all the orange
trees, and every tropical plant-sparing,
however, the southern part of the Peninsu-
la, where the thermometer never went be-
With a few exceptions like these, as I
said, frost is seldom seen, and that only for
a few days of the whole season, just suffi-
cient to animate the invalid, and give a sal-
utary bracing to all the inlhabitants from
the summer relaxation. The territory, in-
deed, is the most genial to be found for in-
valids, particularly those afflicted with 'in-
cipient consumption, and to aill who are
compelled to fly from the rigor of a nor-
thern winter. Here, is perpetual verdure,
and the lakes and rivers open their broad
expanse at all seasons.
Yet this state of salubrity has been abus-
ed upon several occasions; from the want
the first) where the mothi--a woman ap-
parently about thirty years of age-lay on
the floor, with' her head nearly dissevered
from her body by some 4aarp instrument.
By the marks of blood ol the bed, it was
evidently done in that plawe, and her strug-
gles with death had throvin herself out.-
At later feet lay the body of an infant, a few
months old, with its heal also dissevered,
so as scarcely to hang oi its shoulders.--
Such was the horrible s cne of that apart-
We then ascended to';he room directly
above-and there lay the ghastly bodies of
two little girls, one aboat twelve years old
on the floor, and the other 4 or 5 in the
bed-both murdered in the same manner
December, to be 31' only, 1(1 of whoin only
were citizens of tl capital and 5 of the
deaths from fever-- e luainder were
.transient persons from th untry.
Settlers became careless their habits,
undergoing all kiii.ls of exp')sure, with the
very poorest kimdof thre. In their mode
of planting, too,'sine wer( ignorant and
reckless. It was. r instance, a common
custom heedlessly o pull d tvn the superb
forest trees up to tme very iouse door of
the planter; thus t once removing the
powerful operative of k lhealthfiil atmos-
phere, and his'pride tund, rnalmient; and in-
stead of these, und6t thlir v.ry noses to
pUiit hll cotton Sirui, the mtst noxious
and deleterious of all vegetable subhsranes,
when in a state ofdeclioposiiion. Was it
to be wondered at, t ,it this disea, -should
follow this system That such folly should
receive its reward ? Wholo families were
laid up accordingly, and bopne continue to
this day with remnants of ever and ague,
which we call chills, but which'fortunately
is never fatal. Bilious fTe'rs were also
created by other irregularities, and colds,
and pleurisies, for which caomnel was pre-
scribed, to make the rei tly worse than
the disease. Yet still are t ese riot indica-
tive of the general state d the country,
which I maintain to be fhe from fevers
and all epidemics whatever In this I am
supported by every physicki of the territo-.
ry, to whom I confidently appeal, and the
proof will be, that, as ease aid comfort shall
be extended, so shall cease these diseases,
which are purely accident.
It is well known that in all new settle-
ments, where openings aremmade until the
vegetable matter of the fi!ln trees shall be
entirely decomposed, incidittal fevers and
agues must be felt and supported; and
these are severe enough without the aid of
man adding to the calamity by his own im-
prudence. Yoers, truly.
STEINBURG THE MUJRDERER AND SUI-
CIDE.-As we came to Soilthitmpton street,
the crowds of the populace were immense.
It seemed impossible to get near the house,
the way was so thoroughl- choked. We'
gave our horse to the keeping of a boy,
and tried to obtain a passage to the door,
but in vain. What motive coill draw and
keep the people there? Thiv could not
get in ;hey had iro X-, filt They could
only stand and gape, a-id talk; yet there
they would be from moliing till night, and
I suppose in great numbers from night to
morning. The truth w s, they were con-
stantly changing, one taking the place of
another. The newspap rs had announced
to the whole world of tie metropolis, the
dreadful deed; and thoissnds, or tens of
thousands, were constantly coming and go-
ing to see-what ? Soutlampton street and
a crowd.-They could e nothing more.
But man loves tragical senes-at least he
loves to sympathise with hem. He is cu-
rious-he wishes to knot all about it. He
pries into the history of he author of the
tragedy, |and endeavore to find the mo-
tives; he wishes to knowwhen and how it
was done-at what dreadhour of the night
-by what instrument ? Where did he get
it ? How did he use it ?I Did he surprise
the innocent victims in tieir sleep ? Had
they any warning ? Did t ey resist ? What
is the appearance of thags within? In
what position do the ded lie ? Are they
on the bed or are theyon the floor ?-in
their night clothes or 'ow? For they
were not yet removed, bit all remained ex-
actly in the same condi n, in which the
murderer's hand had let them, and the
coroner's jury were then h session, collect-
ing evidence. |
Not succeeding in our attempts to gain
access, my friend went tc the jury's room
and obtained an order for admittance.-
Armed with this power, it became the du-
ty of the policemen to c,.';ar our way, which
they endeavored to do. After much diffi-
culty, we succeeded in gaining the door,
'and finally to get in, though at the hazard
of rending our garments, and of injuring
our persons by the immense physical force
of the mass, that tried to get in by virtue of
our privilege. A few succeeded and push-
ed in with us.
We were-conducted first to a rear cham-
ber in the second floor, (in London called
bound; each having a rope around his
neck, which was frequently jerked so vio-
lently as nearly to choke tnem! In this
manner they were conducted to the scaf-
fold and executed. The unfortunate suf-
ferers presented such, a horrible appear-
ance that the passers by were moved even
to tears! Some of them epdeavored to in-
terfere, but were threatened with a simi-
lar punishment, and obliged to desist.
These unfortunate men claimed to the
last the privilege of American citizens, the
trial by jury, and professed themselves wil-
ling to submit to any thing their country
as the mdiher and infant below. It was
horrible to behold !
We then ascended another flight of stairs,
and entered a 'front chamber, where lay
the body of a little boy, about ten years
old, with his head also nearly dissevered.
He had been sleeping in the swme apart-
mnent with his two sisters, but had fled fi-om
his monster father, while executing lhis
fiendly purpose on his infant daughters.-
But he was pursued-he was overtaken,
and in his struggles of self defence in war-
ding off the knife, lost one 4Qfhis fingers,
which was entirely cut from tie hand and
lay 'on the floor, besides exhibiting other
corespco i ing marks of violence. ,
,We.descendedtto the Laseiment -story
and there lay the monster, the author of
this scene of death, stretched lon his back,
with his arms extended, and the knife in
hand, by which, in the end, he had nearly
severed his own head from his body. He
was hiniself in his night clothes, and so
were all the victims. Not'a human being
remained to, breathe in that house! All-
all were butchered-the mother and four
children-and the murderer by h)is own
hand What a scene!
Was he deranged ? No. The evidence
was abundant, that it was a cool deliberates
plan, devised and executed without any
alienation of mind.
'He had become embarrassed-he was
an athiest, he had lived a vicious life-r-had
many years before separated from his wife,
and lived long enough with this woman,
unmarried, to have three children,-and to
free himself and all from trouble, believing,
not in a future being, he had in this man-
ner ushered himself and them into eterni-'
ty !-[C. Colton in London.
THE OUTRAGE AT VICKSBUiRG.-The
following particulars of this horrid affair,
differing materially fron all previous ac-
counts, are given by the Louisiana Adver-
tiser, of the 13th inst. 'the story is dread-
ful, and affords a melancholy comment up-
on the dangerous condition of the country
and the times, in which such enormities
can be perpetrated.-[N. Y. Sun.
Some difficulty arose at\the public din-
ner given in celebration of the 4th of July,
as too often happens on similar occasions,
between Mr. Fisher, who belonged to the
volunteer compariy, and M-. -anres
ler. From words they proceeded to blows
-Mr. C. having drawn a knife upon his
opponent, the company, taking the part of
their comrade, seized him, bound him to a
tree, and inflicted thirty-two lashes on
e Not considering this sufficient they tarr-
ed and feathered him, alleging that he was
a gambler; he entreated then to shoot him
rather than disgrace him in that manner,
and begged of them not to let the tar fall
in his eyes as they poured it over his head;
but the person he addressed, instead of'
complying with his request, struck him vi-
olently with a stick across his eyes! He
was then released and ordered to quit the
city in 24 hours.
The next day they went forth armed, in'
military array, to pull down, tear out, and
demolish every thing appertaining to gamb-
ling; and to tar and feather any one who
should oppose them !-law, or no law.-
Some wished to protect their property, but
their hearts failed them when they saw the
state of excitement of the volunteers. One
at length determined to stay in Mr. North's
house to protect himself from being tarred,
and to secure the house and grocery from
destruction. He had fastened the doors,
but on Bodley's kicking one of them open,
some shots were exchanged; the conse-
quence of which was, that the Doctor was
killed upon the spot, and one of the in-
mates of the house, a person named Cul-
lum, or as we have heard since, Helms,
was so wounded as to have been totally in-
sensible to the subsequent punishment in-
flicted on him while suspended with the
rest upon the gallows.
Three more individuals were taken in
the house, the bar keeper, called Dutch
Bill, Mr. Samuel Smith, and Mr. M'Call.-
North who had previously quitted it, and
was endeavoring to make his escape by
water, was arrested about a mile from the
town and brought back,his hands were tied
behind him, and he was obliged to walk
with the rest, who had been similarly
cern. These gentlemen report the coun-
try in a healthy state, and the Indians tran-
quil'and well disposed. Mr. Simpson had
received advices from Capt. Back, dated at
Fort Reliance, near Slave Lake,. 7th Dec.
1834, when that officer and the party under
his comrnand, were in excellent health and

they were cut down and thrown together
into a hole which had been dug near the
gallows, without coffins or any other pre-'
parations, except a box into which one of
them was put.
Thus ending this disgusting and horri-
ble occurrence. We understand the mag-
istrates attempted to interfere, but were
cautioned at their peril not to intermeddle
in the affair.
OaRmin or LYNcH's LAW.-As "Lyn-
ch's law" has recently become almost as
general as it is proverbial, and as the ques-
tion is asked a hundred times a day," what
is Lynch's law ?" it may be well to relate
the following anecdote, which may serve
as an answer:-
In Washington county, Pa; many years
ago, there lived a poaching vagabond, who,
it was believed, maintained himself and
family by pilfering from the farmers around
him. Though universally suspected, yet
Ie-anaffgetrodrfoiriyias alhvays to avoid
detection. At length a Mr. Van Swearih-
gen laid the following trap for himl, in
which' he was caught. Having a newly
born calf, he concealed it from his neigh-
bors several days-then rode over to the
poacher's and told him that a young calf had
recently strayed to his farm, which he had
penned, and was anxious to find the own-
er. The poacher asked-him how long he
had had it, its size and color, and being told,
said it was his, and that it had gone offjust
at the time spoken of. Being thus detect-
ed in a lie with a design to defraud, Van
Swearingen reproached him with it, and
told him he would give him twenty-four
hours to leave the neighborhood, adding,
that if he remained longer, he would pros-
ecute him. The poacher only laughed at
his threats, while the latter went to, consult
with his neighbors as to whai was to be
done. At the expiration of the twenty-
four hours, five or six of them repaired to
the poacher's, whom they found perfectly
unintimidated. The party however pro-
ceeded to try him in due form, choosing
one of their number, a farmer naImed
Lynch, to be judge. Van Swearinger iela-
ted the offence, which the poacher of
course denied. The case was submitted
to the judge, who decided that the poach-
er should be tied up and receive three hun-
dred lashes,-" well laid on," and then be
given twenty-four hours to leave the place,
under penalty of receiving three hundred
more if found after that time. The first
part of the sentence was inflicted, on the
spot, with such good intent, as to render
its repetition unnecessary. The culprit
made offas fast as his lacerated limbs would

had a slight affair with the armed schoon-
er Montezuma, which vessel, it will be ren- 1

INSURRECTION OF SLAVES IN CUBA.-
We have been favored with the follow-
ing extract of a letter giving a more detail-
ed account han has yet been published, of
the disturbances among the, negroes in the
vicinity of the Havana.
\ .HAVANA, 27th July, 1835.
-When yo~v hear of the difficulties we
have had here amongst the slaves, let it not
alarm you,'fas the affair was of no conse-
quence. About 40 negroes, *emancipa-
dos" probably badly advised, thought they
would sooner obtain -their freedom by rais-
ing upon those who"kept them and massa-
creing all the white people they might
meet on the high road about three miles
from the city, As soon as the alarm,was
given, the cavalry marched to the spot, led
on by Goterrior Tacon in person; orders
were give not to spare one. They were
soon dispersed and, massacred in their
turn. Some of them made a brutal resist-
ance and there w themselves like wild beasts
on the horses, and preferring to be abso-
lutely cut into'pieces rather than surren-
der. Others fled, and a good many were
made prisoners. About eighteen or twen-
ty lives have been lost. Five of which
were 1nJ -6jes, tli6 rest' negroes., T his -hap-
)ened on Suiday the 12th inst., afone o'-
clock in t6e iafternoIon. On Tuesday the
14th, at the same hour-and almost at the
same spot, negro slaves carrying water ei-
ther insulted or threatened a sentinel who
was shot dead. Immediately afterwards a
free negro woman having some property,
and who was called by the blacks la Rey-
na, was made prisoner as well as five more
free negroes, who were found concealed in
her dwelling with muskets and swords.-
Amongst them there is one negro from Ja-
maica, and another from St. Domingo.
'Six of the negroes who revolted on Sun-
day, were shot at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
There are still many more to be executed.
*" Negros Emaneipados."-These are ne-
groes captured ;y the English from the slave
traders who thqy make prisoners and bring
into the Havanna. They deliver them up to
the Spanish G6'vernment on condition that
they shall be free after five years residence
in the colony.-[Courier & Enquirer.
TEXAS.-It Seems from the New Or-
leans.papers that the recent change in the
form of the government of Mexico, is like-
ly to involve out neighbors of Texas in a
war with St. An*a. It is well known that
almost the entire population of Texas con-
sists of emigrants from the Unted States.
People who wanted more room! Who
were dissatisfied Eere, at seeing the smoke
of two chimneys i6 the same horizon, and
who have carried, with them all the per-
sonal hardihood, ad of all that wild spirit
of adventure, 'whib.h marks the character
of the frontier m-n, as being of a distinct
raee. Maniy againi,'are substantial planters,
who have settled in Texas on account of,
the low price of lands there, and with a
view of possessing themselves of large
tracts.-It is said that ten thousand men
are now ready, with arms in their hands to
dispute the right of the general govern-
ment of Mexico to compel them to any
course of conduct which is not agreeable
to themselves. Confident in their strength,
they are anxious for the happening of some-
thing which may disturb their tranquility t
by setting the Mexican government upon t
them. Hitherto Texas has taken part with
St. Anna in all his difficulties, but since
the adoption of the centralisimo plan ofgov- 4
ernment, a disposition seems to have been
manifested towards ,that state, much less
favorable than that which formerly pre- I
failed in the government of Mexico. In- t
deed there seems scarcely to have been
any government at all in Texas for some s
years past. They have generally chosen
heir own officers, civil and military, and (
when others have been appointed, their
authority has been disregarded. Separated t
as Texas is, by a broad belt of uninhabited j
country, it would be scarcely possible for d
n invading army to. approach them, and c
no army that could be sent against them t
would long hold out against such a popu- m
ation. The result of the present state of n
things, will be looked for with much inter- i
st and anxiety.-(Pensac'bla Gazette. e
DISCOVERY CF A MOUND.-In clearing
piece of ground! on the Gennessee rive
few days since,4I mound, 90 feet in circu

rods square, inhte centre, was discover.
about three 'hu dred feet from the river
On making an xcavation.into the mou
the following discoveries were made:
"A skeletori was discovered, with
head placed t0 the centre, lying on
back, the head resting oii a flat stone,I
arms folded a ross the breast, ardd the i
extending to'ards the circumference
the mound ; ge stores of from forty
eighty pound eight were placed on e6
side of the s Teton, ad over these a
the skeleton sere placed flat stones. '1
bones were ii a very decayed state, a
would not preserve thiig form when ,
posed to the ir. Parts of three skelet(
were discover d in ab(ut one eighth of
whole moun, or the section in which t
excavation wyhs made.
"Over on1 of these skeletons was ph
ed 26 arrow heads, one stone knife, and
stone cleaver; also a copper skewer
about 6. o,07 inches in length, about t
size ora pipe's tail, flattened a little at o
end, and slightly twisted. The stone kn
i'ofveiy fine hard stone, clouded green
or 4 inches n breadth, and. about 7
length, with small hole in the midd
The cleaver of about the same dimensio
as the knife, cut off square, and sevel
notches niade on one end; a hole in t
middle. This is of soft slate stone. T1
pipe bowl wat made of coarse sand stoi
about an inchsquare, and rudely orname
ted by rubbing notches on the upper ed
of the bowls. I
All these articles are of the rudest wor
manship. Evn the arrow heads are ti
rudest that cai be found, and seem to ha'
been made w en the skill of making a
row heads w yet in its infancy. Lart

ia HEALTH IN WARM V4EATHER.-The prevail-
by ing opinion among certain classes, in rela-
ire tion to health in the Summer season.is, that
It it is necess ry to resort to some celebrated
of place, and drink of, and bathe in its waters.
The nymphs of old tradition and history were
n- woht to do so. The bjiles of the present day
ate love the'waters ol" Saratoga and Ballstown;
nt- and fond parents who hdve the metallic cur-
is rency to, spare, are as fond of a jaunt of pleas-
he ure, as their discreet offspring are of a dis-
o- play. It is true that a change of climate af-
th fects the system; so does change of diet'; so
ye does prosperity or misfortune. But the idea'
at, that a seated and. fixed malady, which, has
already grasped upon the vital functions can
a be immediately cured by drinking water fro
of any spring, is absurd. There is an abundance
at of old legends and, traditions 'in relation to
ic the qualities of water. The- superstitions of
the Aborigines and of, the lingering and
he wasting train of their descendants are yet
e cherished by them, as well as by some edura-
is ted persons. The waters of Lake George,
et the "fairy sheet of water" in the State -f
lit New York, have in their history astonishing
's traces of enthusiasm. The Lake was suippo-
gs sed to be holy-and from its transparency and
n- purity, was believed .to possess efficacy'to
.e cleanse the moral pollution of the soul. The
is Indian, with his bark canoe, as he :glided
n over its beautiful surface, felt that the Great
Spirit lingered on its borders.
1l We, in almost every paper, see accounts of
e throngs and multitudes assembling at water-
r. ing places of great celebrity and fame. This
, fame" is the panacea. The papers an-
t nounce arrived at such a time, Mr. and
SMrs. W. and daughter," the -latter probably
- "in market."-Next we see "the balls at
8 the Ulnited Stater Hotel on such nd s ch
, evenings, were brilliantly thronged, Miss W.
Swas the belle." The party meet-dance and
d waltz-then cqmes a series of ice-creams-
t rich confectiontry- wine-porter-lemonade
h -jellies and fruits,-and when one goes to
, the healing spring the next sunrise after the
t levee, he will hear of the alarming indisposi-
I tion of many, who would have been in good
health, if they had not cast a blight by fash-
j ionable dissipation. So mnch for our idea of
restoring health by travelling a great dis-
tance-tiring out a frail system-merely to
have it said, they are on a trip to Saratoga.'
SWhy should the fact be disguised or conceal-
Sed-that more than half of the summer trav-
* selling invalids merely wish to make a dise-
play of their moneyand clothes. They would
enjoy better health, if they lived temperately
and quietly at home, with a regular diet of
wholesome provisions, than they would in
the sumptuous dining rooms of public places
Sof resort, or the dazzling brilliancy of a splen-
Sdid cotillion room. An invalid wants quiet.
The dress should conform to the complaint,
. and not to the company. "Regular set times
and ceremonies" should be out of the ques-
tion. Exercise, and social intercourse, (as
occasion requires) are worth more than bar-
rels of Congress water, and hundreds of
quadrilles and waltzes.

A MOTHER'S LOVE.
Happy is'he who knows a mother's love.
WHAT IS SO PURE? The patriot ex-
pects fame, thoe friend sympathy, and the
lover pleasure. Even religion while she
waters her faith with tears, looks forward
to the best of her labors and her love. But
maternal affection springs from the breast
uninvoked by the wand of hope, unadul-
terated by the, touch of interest. Its ob-
jects are the weak and woeful. It haunts
the cradle of infantile pain, or hovers near
the couch, of the faint and forsaken. Its
sweetest smiles break through the clouds
of misfortune and its gentlest tones arise
and the sighs of suffering and of sorrow.
It is a limpid and lovely flow of feeling
which gushes fronm the fountain head of
purity; and courses the heart through sel-
ish designsand sordid passions immingling
WHAT IS 'SO FIRM? Time and misfor-
tune, penury and persecution, hatred and
ififamy, may roll their dark waves succes-
sively over it-and still it smiles unchang-
ed; or the more potent allurements of for-
tune, opulence and p -de, power and splen-
dor, may woo her-aid yet she unmoved!
a mother "loves and loves forever !!-I
WHAT IS So FAITHFUL ? From infancy
to age, "through good report and through
evil report," the dews of maternal affection
are shed upon the soul. When heart strick-
ened and abandoned; when branded by
shame and followed by scorn, her arms
are still open--her breast is still kind.-
Through every trial, that love will follow,
cheers in misfortune, support us in dis-
:ease, smooth the pillow of pain and moisten
the bed of death, '
Happy is he who knows a mother's love.
TiiE LOVELINESS OF WoMAN.-It is not
the smiles of a pretty face, nor the tint of
thy complexion, nor the beauty and sym-
metry of thy 'pereon, nor yet the costly
robes and decorations that compose thy
artificial beauty ; no-nor that enchanting
glance, which thou dartest with such lus-
tre on the man thou deemest worthy of thy
affection. It is thy pleasing deportment-
thy chaste conversation-thy ,sensibility,
anwmre pnurhy ormty t-ughti-rtrypriablei
and open disposition-thy sympathising
with those in adversity-comforting the
afflicted--relieving the distressed-and,
above all, that humility of soul, that un-
feigned and perfect regard of the precepts
of Christianity. These virtues constitute
thy loveliness. Adorned but with those of
nature and simplicity, they will shine like
the refulgent sun, and display to man that
the loveliness of thy person is not to be
found in the tinsel ornaments of the body,
but in the rectitude and serenity of a well
spent life, that soars above the transient
vanities of this world. And when thy
days are ended here upon earth, thy happy
spirit shall be wafted to the regions of
GENIUS, TALENT, CLEVERNESs.-Genius
rushes like a whirlwind. Talent marches
like a cavalcade of heavy men and heavy
horses. Cleverness skims like a swallow
in a summer evening, with a sharp, shrill
note, and a sudden turning. The man of
genius dwells with men and with nature-
the man of talent in his study-but the
clever fellow dances here, there, and every
where, like a butterfly in a hurricane strik-
ing everything and enjoying nothing, but
too light to be dashed to pieces. The man
of talent will attack thee -thes e clever
man assails the individual, and slanders
private character-but the man of genius
despises both-he heeds none,' he fears
none, he lives in himself, shrouded in the
consciousness of his own strength-he in-
terferes with none, and walks forth an ex-
amale that eagles fly alone"-they are but
sheep that' herd together. It is true that
should poisonous worms cross his path he
may tread it under foot-should a cur snarl
at him, he may chastise it-but he will not,
cannot attack the privacy of another. Clev-
er men write verses, men of talent write
pros, but the man of genius writes poetry.

** Justice Blanks-Deeds-Bills of La-

toes, it might puzzle one at a first glance to
tell which wes the front or back part. The
master after looking at his feet procured
him a stout pair of brogans, with a piece of
sole leather stitched upon the ancle part
for a stiffener. No sooner had the black
tried them on than he told his master that
they pained him. The master, after pass-
ing his hand round them and finding that
their size was ample, replied, why Pomp,
they cannot pinch you, they're plenty
large." Whereupon the pride wounded
negro laid his hand upon his breast, and
looked up into his master's face and said,
"they pain me right in here, massa!"
WELL DONE, GOOD, RESOLUTION !-A,
man who was in the daily habit of passing
a grog-shop at last got into the habit of
every day calling for a dram. This he
done regularly until being in a great hurry
he attempted to pass without his accus-
tomed dose; but on coming to the place
he found the attraction so strong that it
staggered him as it had, often done before.
" What," said he "can't I go by, I'll see,"
and he held 'his hand over his mouth, and
went "ahead"i and shot by. Well done,
good resolution!" said ,he "now let's go
back and take something to drink."

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
lustrated by numerous Engravings.
BY THE BOSTONJ BEWICK COMPdNJVY.
TFHE success which has attended the pub-
location of the best Magazines from the
English Press, has led to preparations for is-
suing a periodical more particularly adapted
to the wants and taste of the American pub-
lic. While it will be the object of the pro
prietors to make the work strictly what its
title indicates, it will, nevertheless, contain
all articles of interest to its patrons, which
appear in foreign Magazines.
Extensive preparations have been. entered
into, both with Artists and Authors, to fur-
nish, from all parts of the Union, drawings
and illustrations of every subject of interest,
which the publishers confidently believe will
enable them to issue a work honorable to its
title and acceptable to the American People.
The American Magazine is published
monthly-each number containing between
forty and fifty imperial octavo pages, at Two
DOLLARS per annum, payable in advance.
It comprises-Portraits and Biographical
Sketches of distinguished Americans Views
of Public Buildings, Monuments, and im-
proveme~its; Landscape scenery-the bound-
less variety and beauty of which, in this
country, will form an unceasing source of in-
strudtion and gratification; Engravings and
descriptions of the character, habits, &c. of
Birds, Beasts, Fishes, and Insects, together
with every subject connected with the Geo-
graphy, History, Natural and Artificial re-
sources of the country, illustrated in a familiar
and popular manner.

TO THIE PUBLIC. ,
T HE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The,.Southern gricnlturalist from its late
Editor and proprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
solicits the support of the friends of Agricul-
ture, and( of the interests connected with it,
throughout the Southern States. "He has
published this work for Mr. Legare from its
commencement, in the .year 188,-, and he is
thus practically acquainted with the mode in
which it should be conducted. ^Its publica-
tion will be continued on the same terms and
in the same manner as heretofore with'such
improvements as his experience may sugg-est.
As the subscriber is solicitous to make this
Journal the vehicle for disseminating useful
information, not only with regard to estab-
lished systems of husbandry, but also experi-
mental efforts in Agriculture and Horticul-
ture, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
nication from all persons occupied in these
pursuits. Let no one imagine that solitary
facts Or isolated experiments are too trivial to
be communicated. All systematic knowl-
edge is but the aggregate of humble particu-
lars; and Science, in every department, is
brought to perfection, not through the instru-
mentality of a single extraordinary mind, but
by the contribution of particulars by many
individuals, and generally after the lapse of
many years, he is desirous, therefore, to have
as many facts to record as can be furnished'-
and from the planter, wvhb is systematic in
his experimental labors, an account of his
failures as well a his successful efforts, will
be acceptable. If the last are worthy of being
recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
fellow citizens of the South, will not be in
vain. It would be 'a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of
the last it may be justly said, that it was s-it
fered to fall, when it was not only rearing for
us a well merited fame as a literary people,
'but it was also vindicating the Southern hab-
its from the unjust aspersions which have
been so liberally bestowed upon us out of our
section of country. The "Southern Agri-
culturalist" in some measure supplies the-,
place of the Southern Review, so far as re-r'
gards the circumstances last alluded to. It
serves as a Register not only of methods of
Husbandry, but also of facts relating to
system of Slavery. The subjects of the di-
pline, the treatm .the characters of our
Slaves, are faiikfy sued to its pls, atid
constitute topics a interesting andldortant
as tly which can entgage.ithe r own at-
tention or tlihe attention-etthose abroad, who
feel a legitimate interest in our concerns.
The subscriber beg .leave, in conclusion,
to remark, that if he hdd not undertaken to
continue the publication of this Periodical, it,
most probably, would have been 'either re-
moved from our city, or been suspended.
Whether it will be in his power to continue it,
will depend not only on the Pecuniary but
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ters. He confidently now leaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a full assurance that.
there is wanting on the part of our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agrieulturist.:
